Jeremy Jauncey: Travel choices - Maldives or Seychelles, Airbnb or hotels?
Island of choice
Maldives vs Seychelles: which Indian ocean islands do you prefer and why?
—Shatapti R, Via Email
Impossible for me to say! I love both and have had amazing experiences every time I’ve been there. Indians are very lucky to have both so close by.
The main stay
Airbnb over regular hotels: what’s your personal preference?
—Royan Rodricks, Mumbai
Both have a role in my travels as I think both are important factors in supporting local economies. I’ve loved visiting hotels since I was little and as more and more I have become conscious of their environmental impact they have moved the industry forward. On the other hand, I love that Airbnb has enabled local people to generate extra income and feel the benefits that tourism can bring to their communities.
